Referring to BJP’s party symbol lotus and AGP’s symbol elephant, Assam health minister on Thursday said, “Lotus is synonymous to elephant and elephant is synonymous to lotus and voting for the elephant means you are voting for the lotus.”

He was speaking at an election rally in the Sorukhetri assembly constituency while campaigning for Kalpana Patowary, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) candidate from the constituency.

As BJP and AGP are allies, Sarma urged the people to vote for the AGP candidate and said only then will the constituency witness growth and development.

“The BJP-led NDA government in Assam has ushered a new wave of growth and development in Assam in the last five years,” Sarma further said.

“We have initiated several schemes and programmes for the development and uplifting the poor and the downtrodden. For us, every religion is equal and we have not differentiated among beneficiaries based on religion” he added.

“Whether one has been a Hindu or a Muslim, we have worked for everyone without any bias,” he further said.

“I urge the people of Sorukhetri constituency to come out and vote for Kalpana Patowary and be a part of growth and development,” he added.

“Once the BJP-led government comes to power in Assam, we will provide jobs to 1 lkah youths within the first year. Moreover, we will also provide scooty and motorbikes to students up to graduate level and also provide Rs 100 per day for fuel,” Sarma further said.

He also lashed out at the Congress-led grand alliance and said that apart from aiding in their higher education, the BJP-led NDA government in the state has also been extensively working towards women empowerment.
